Like that rear rack. Where'd you get it?
Yes ,the OEM windscreen kit uses the r1200r screen and a specific bracket :
1 - 46 63 7 697 209 : WINDSHIELD SPORT, CLEAR
- 71 60 7 704 107 : WINDSHIELD, SPORT, TINTED
2 -71 60 7 705 971 : SET OF PARTS F WINDSHIELD
Judging by the shape, I'd say it's a Hepco & Becker rack.
thanks for the windshield info. unfortunately, still expensive as expected.

here's the RT windscreen and looks identical to the XCo OEM. the brackets are different.

I've made a too long and boring video about my Xcountry but you can speed it up and watch my mods. Unfortunatly not in English but their is the translator...
not a bad deal!
i am interested to get a taller wiindscreen that will fit on the oem bracket.
nice. i miss my XCo. won't be till july 2019 to reunite with ms. merkel. yes, that's my bike's name.
temporarily separated from my X, but looking forward this year to get back on her.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!
I bought this very clean, low (13k) miles 2018 XCountry eariler this year. I know it's only a lil 650 single and it's only got 52 bhp but still, I'm a bit disappointed with the performance. It's likely that in my hands, it's only ever going to be ridden on sealed roads as we have next to nowhere here in Scotland that you can legally ride off-road.
So, in my desire to give it some more horsepower, I've sourced one of the spare unused engines from Charley Boorman's 2009 Dakar Rally attempt. It was built by Touratech and was reputed to have dyno'd at 72 bhp. It's provenance was verified by BMW Motorrad UK and the appropriate race ECU was also sourced from them.
In advance of attempting the engine swap, I'm wondering if anyone else has fitted and F650 engine into a G650? The obvious issue I can see is that the boss on the rear of cylinder head to which the shock absorber mounting frame attaches is different. There may also be issues in getting the ABS to work with the race ECU, although again, an ABS ring to fool the ECU into thinking that a 21" front wheel is fitted was sourced from BMW UK. This. however, is in an F650GS wheel fitment rather than G650.
I'm still in two minds about performing the conversion and considering if I should perhaps buy an F650 into which I can fit the engine more easily. I've even had impure thoughts about an F650CS Scarver....
@Schtum , What made you choose the Xcountry?
I know it's the wrong place to make suggestions like this, but to me it sounds like you could save yourself a lot of headache by just selling the X and buying a 701SM that has 74hp in stock form?
I see you have fitted a high front fender on the XCountry. Which one is it?
The ABS doesn't talk to the ECU as far as I'm aware.
You'll possibly need a different head. So any pro's from the works one will be lost.
I'm looking for X country front wheel . Anyone have one laying around they don't use ? May sumone who just wheelies down the road and dosent realey need it .
Screen Puig Touring II, is very ugly but protect a lot from wind.
I have a whole new one.
Hope you are doing fine!
I'm looking for a Unifilter air filter for the XCO. Seems to be hard to find this one nowdays. Any website that you are aware of that you could share? thanks
looking to part ways with it? I stripped the sprocket retention threads on mine.
Just re-tap the threads. Replacing the sprocket shaft requires rebuilding the engine and transmission.
